Day 01

Step aboard the trolley of the doomed... and join your host, a 17th Century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation.

This wretched creature is doomed to travel the streets of Boston and relay the stories of the unfortunate souls he encountered and the macabre events he had been witness to during his purgatory.

Join other apprentice grave diggers on an adventure through the darker side of Boston. A scary, fun and informative fright seeing experience that is truly one of a kind.

Hear about Boston's most sinister characters, from the Angel of Death to the king of all killers, the Boston Strangler. Learn about all the haunts that call the "Hub" their home. But that's not all! Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston proper for a walking tour you will never forget. Learn the significance of much of the imagery found in these 17th century burial grounds and the famous and not so famous (but even more interesting) occupants therein.

Visit the Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End, nestled atop the tallest point in one of Boston's oldest historic districts. Here you will visit the final resting place of Cotton Mather, a man famous for his "intimate" involvement with the Salem Witch Trials. Then to the Granary Burying Ground where you will visit the final resting places of many of the most famous heroes of the American Revolution including John Hancock, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.

    Fun Time, Interesting Historical Stories

    My husband and I took this tour on a Friday night. As we sat on the trolley waiting for the rest of the group to show up, Frank, our tour guide, remained in character and tried to scare everyone before the tour started in an effort to set t...he mood. He would sneak up behind the trolley and bang the side or sit next to the tourists and hand them silly props or stare at them intensely. A little cheesy but definitely fun. Frank was an excellent narrator and offered more historical stories than ghost stories. The tour takes you into two different grave yards at night (which you would not be able to access without the tour as they are locked after a certain time) and also into the Boston common. The trolley also took you throughout the city and Frank was able to point out areas such as the apartment of the last victim of the Boston Strangler and the Omni Parker Hotel (where a ghost haunts room 303). Frank offered a lot of insight in a fun manner. In fact, his format was often interactive which kept everyone's interest. Definitely better than the other ghost tour (walking tour) we took in Boston. -Visited September 2011 Read full review
